Publisher's Summary

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

    "Great story aswell as narrator"

    i listened to this book mostly during my runs. Found i enjoyed that a lot. Narrator was good, gave good distinct accents and variety of voices for each character. I will get the second book.

    "Good Story, Mediocre Writing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. While I haven't seen the movie yet, I assume that this is one of those rare exceptions where the movie will be better than the book. It's an hour long story packed into a 10 hour book. Every conversation goes something like this, "I have something to tell you." "What is it?" "It's hard for me to say." "Just tell me!" "I'm going to, but I need you to listen." "I'm listening." "Stop interrupting me." "Just tell me!" and on, and on, and on...


    If you’ve listened to books by James Dashner before, how does this one compare?

    First and last James Dashner. I know he writes for kids, but I still expected more given the success of this book...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Deakins’s performances?

    I probably would listen to Mark again. While he sounded a bit robotic at times, I hate to judge his reading based on this book.

    "Great story up until the end"

    I loved this book right up to the last few chapters. Story is exciting and engaging. The ending is just a bit of a downer.

    "Great start"

    This was a great book standing alone, sadly I feel that the author just started grasping at tangents and random motives to finish the trilogy.

    "Good Freaking Book"

    This is a good book. The reader isn't my favorite (that title belongs to Ms. Reading), but he does an excellent job voicing the characters. I can't wait to start the second book.

    "Awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Maze Runner to be better than the print version?

    Literally on the edge of my seat! Loved it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chuck- his grown up innocence was almost heartbreaking


    What about Mark Deakins’s performance did you like?

    Awesome narrator!
